Election to Fellowship in the American Physical Society
Dr. Mohamed Laradji, Department of Physics received a Fellowship in the American Physical
Society for his pioneering and seminal contributions to applications of computational
techniques in elucidating physics of bio-membranes, complex fluids, and of polymers.
This great honor reflects Dr. Laradji's outstanding contributions to physics and a
recognition of the top research at the University of Memphis. Note that election to
the APS fellowship is limited to no more than one half of one percent of the membership.

TN-SCORE Sponsors MemphisCRESH Students
For the third consecutive summer, TN-SCORE has partnered with MemphisCRESH (College
Research Experience for Students in High School) to provide research-based learning
experiences at the University of Memphis to high school students.
MemphisCRESH is a 7-week, intensive, summer day program that allows high school students
to work on a research project. TN-SCORE researcher and MemphisCRESH Director, Dr.
Firouzeh Sabri supervises the students in conjunction with undergraduate students,
graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows.
This summer's TN-SCORE-sponsored participants are Elijah Tyler, Brianna Howard, and
Nairobi Ballard. Elijah and Brianna attend Freedom Preparatory Academy and are working
with Dr. Samuel Mensah in the Department of Physics. Nairobi attends White Station
High School and is working with TN-SCORE researcher Dr. Sanjay Mishra in the Department

The Society of Physics Students (SPS) hosted a trivia night coupled with a poster
presentation in the UC River Room last month that far surpassed their expectations. The
trivia game was emceed by Dr. Robert Marchini and included questions of General Knowledge,
Science, and Memphis Trivia. During the half time the students presented a poster
session to show the research they had been doing in the Physics department, as well
as tables with physics demonstrations. Full Article Link
